ISSA is the community of choice for international cybersecurity professionals dedicated to advancing individual growth, managing technology risk and protecting critical information and infrastructure.

How we work with ISSA

Logical Operations and ISSA are partnering to promote the importance of extended cybersecurity learning as a way to better protect an organization’s network and data from being compromised. 

This partnership provides any CyberSec First Responder candidate who passes their CFR-210 exam a free ISSA membership (valued at $95) and pre-paid ISSA chapter dues for one year (valued at up to $80 depending on location). 

““The goals of the ISSA are closely aligned with the purpose of the Logical Operations CyberSec First Responder (CFR) certification.  We are so excited to offer general ISSA memberships to help those who pass the CFR exam to further their cyber security knowledge.”  ”
Paul Hoffmann | Director of Certifications | Logical Operations
